CARSON GETTING FOREIGN POLICY ADVICE IN PREPARATION FOR POTENTIAL WHITE HOUSE RUN

Ben Carson, in a written statement he provided to Bloomberg Politics, claimed he is doing his homework to better understand foreign policy.

The retired neurosurgeon and political commentator, who is exploring the possibility of entering the race for the Republican presidential nomination, has been criticized for his lack of experience regarding foreign affairs, Breitbart News reported.

He told Bloomberg: “Although I have visited the Baltic Rim and over 57 other countries around the world, I am still in the stage of rapidly learning about the political dynamics of global politics.”

In a Friday interview, Carson disclosed that he is receiving a foreign policy briefing each week from “former military people; some people who worked in the State Department.”

When asked about the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, Carson said: “We need to look at fresh ideas. I don’t have any problem with the Palestinians having a state, but does it need to be within the confines of Israeli territory? Is that necessary, or can you sort of slip that area down into Egypt? Right below Israel, they have some amount of territory, and it can be adjacent. They can benefit from the many agricultural advances that were made by Israel… technology could transform that area.”
